Score with Chamber Strings

Why use a small string ensemble as opposed to a full symphonic section? Many Sweetwater composers favor chamber groups because they are more intimate and let you hear individual voices. They're also more agile, enabling you to write for more intricate inner-voice motion. Spitfire Audio's Spitfire Chamber Strings gives you 16 first-call string players: four first violins, three seconds, three violas, three cellos, and three basses. This is not your run-of-the-mill string library. Recorded in the rarefied acoustics of Air Studios at Lyndhurst Hall London using only the finest mics and studio equipment, Spitfire Chamber Strings is delicate, detailed, and stunningly beautiful. It will bring a fresh, unique sonic character to your orchestrations.

Only the best for Spitfire Audio

Spitfire Audio's recipe for Spitfire Chamber Strings was simple: Secure the services of top London session players. Book a world-class scoring stage for the sessions - Air Studios Lyndhurst Hall, with their huge mic locker filled with priceless vintage mics and the world's largest Neve 88R console with custom Montserrat preamps. Record the samples to an impeccably maintained Studer 2" tape machine. Execute digital conversions at 96kHz via the finest Prism A/D converters. At Sweetwater, we think the term signal chain envy certainly applies here!

Sonic options galore

Spitfire Audio Spitfire Chamber Strings lets you mix and mute mic positions, giving you a choice of close mics, Decca tree, and ambient outriggers. If you're scoring for 5.0, you can route your spots into the center channel, the tree to left and right, and the ambients to the left and right surrounds. Or just mix in stereo. Either way, Spitfire Chamber Strings sounds great, and you can automate everything.

Amazing Depth and Detail

These strings are incredible. There is depth here and detail that I'd expect to hear in professional recordings of "real" orchestras. The UACC articulation control scheme is really helpful. I use these to record directly in my notation program, Notion, and the strings sound lifelike and realistic. You can hear individual players at times come through just like a live ensemble. I would have rated them 5.0 but Spitfire's documentation isn't the best. There is a manual for this program which is better than some of their other libraries, and it's not bad, but it seems like a lot of things are missing.
